London has been voted the most desirable city for overseas workers, beating New York, Berlin and Barcelona, according to the latest study by the Boston Consulting Group and totaljobs.com.
The UK overall, however, has dropped three places in the country rankings over concerns about the cross-border movement of workers following Brexit.
The study also found that the number of British workers willing to seek employment overseas has soared to more than 60% - the largest increase in any country.
This is Boston's second such study in four years and shows the UK slipping from second in 2014 to fifth in attractiveness, despite the capital holding on to its top spot.
The US, Germany, Canada and Australia all rank higher than Britain in terms of attractiveness to overseas workers after the Brexit vote.
The report said the decline in the UK's popularity was particularly apparent for residents of European countries, the UAE and China.
